Mission Statement

When music and the human spirit connect, the lives of all people are enriched. The Dr. Francis G. Bulber Youth Orchestra was founded in August of 1994. The mission is to teach music and its role in human history by means of applied music in an orchestral environment. Youth Orchestra members develop thinking skills that promote analysis, synthesis, and integration. Listening skills, leadership abilities, and success-oriented performance opportunities result in self-discipline, motivation, and the growth of a musically literate population.
